Optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) have seen a resurgence of interest with the availability of new materials and high-quality crystal manufacture. Synchronously pumped OPOs are potentially the ideal source for the many applications requiring widely tunable ultrashort pulses. For stability in both amplitude and frequency it is highly desirable to have only one of the two generated waves being resonated in a singly resonant oscillator (SRO). It has been shown previously that the average powers required to achieve threshold can be in the tens of milliwatts range, and are thus ideally suited for pumping by frequency-doubled diode-pumped mode-locked lasers. The OPO described here is based on a Brewster angled lithium tri-borate crystal.
